My Favorite Tools
People often ask me what tools I use for various tasks, so I put together this list to make it easier to share.
I don’t add tools here unless I personally use them and endorse them. Some of the links below are referral links which may give both of us a little free credit, so click away if you want to try any of these out.
- Airtable - Content calendar, personal CRM, applicant tracking system, and so much more.
- Trello - My project management and life organization tool.
- Zapier - I automate everything I can with Zapier.
- Calendly - I never knew I needed Calendly until I started a business. Cuts down on so many back-and-forths.
- GSuite - Maybe too obvious, but half my life is in the Google Suite.
- Dropbox Paper - I write all my blog posts in Dropbox Paper then export them as Markdown files.
- Grammarly - Takes care of all the little details when you’re writing.
- Jet Brains IDE - The first IDE I’ve had that was worth every penny.
- DigitalOcean - The best all-around virtual machines available.
- Heroku - Before you’re ready for DigitalOcean, you probably want Heroku.
- Github - Not only a code-hosting platform, Github is my go-to static site hosting as well.
Sales and Marketing
- Carrd - The best one-page landing page builder I’ve found.
- Streak CRM - Good for tracking sales leads, sending follow-ups, and mail merges.
- Hunter.io - There are a million reasons you might want to find an email address. This is how I do it.
- Mailchimp - Has its rough edges, but Mailchimp is probably the best all-purpose email management tool available.
- Wohven - I wear a black t-shirt and jeans every day. Wohven takes care of my t-shirts.
